THE SOCIAL POWER PROCESS
1. Decide which issue you are passionate about.
The issue needs to be important yet something that can be resolved. Issues should affect others as well and not just you. Once your issue is shared, Social Power raises awareness for that issue on their social network at the same time you share it on your social networks.
2. When your Issue becomes an Initiative.
The key for truly raising awareness for your issue is for 1,000 people to agree with you. Once that happens, your issue becomes an initiative and since that means that there is potentail so solve it and people on board who can help solve it. These people are called Agents of Change and they are notified about your issue as soon as it becomes and initiative.
3. The final phase is the Resolution Phase.
The Agent of Change will then come up with an acceptable solution and offer it back to the Social Power user base. There are many resolutions that could come about such as price reductions, better products, services, or experiences.
